Susil Crags

Disaster has struck!
The Crags are a series of rocky formations with small caves and crevices throughout. Many of the lower-lying areas of the Crags have been flooded, however, with water pouring in from the Northern stretches of Moladion. Some paths have been completely submerged, and some are nothing more than a few rocky peaks sticking out of the water. The water is fairly slow moving but begins to pick speed up towards the Grotto, becoming a series of intense rapids and waterfalls as it nears the Grotto's entrance.

The area itself is still traversible. However, it can be risky. Large amounts of debris can enter the waterway, creating bridges at times but also creating dams that break and cause ocassional flash-flooding. Be careful, travelers! One wrong step and you could end up finding out where the water goes.

Note: Susil Crags will return to normal once 25 posts have been completed (or at Staff discretion). During this time, new threads will receive a 'Surprise','Disaster', and prizes.

Return to Lunar Children

watch me come undone

I hear another's foot steps; there's something familiar about them but I can't quite put my finger on what it is. It's like an old memory but it's not one that makes me happy, at least I can recognise that. I can't help but wonder who it is though and I even get a little hopeful as they get closer; I lift my head up with a tiny smile I've been saving up all day. I've missed having friends, especially the one's I had been close to in Judila. I haven't really found others like that which I think is part of the reason I'm staying alone with Cobryn. I can't tell if it's the wolf that's approaching me or the river that's making me think more and more of Judila, but I guess I'll find out fast enough.

And then there he is. He comes right for me without even a second's hesitation - I don't even have time to stand up before he gets to me. He's grown so big but I can see his body is riddled with scars; he's starring right at me though and I can't do anything but stare back. I remember him - how couldn't I? I remember him when he was just a puppy but even then he'd been so strange. But now? The whole world remembered him - he was a killer and, well, I can't say I ever really liked him. I remember he had taken Arsenic's side when she and Jaidah had battled for Judila but I can't help but think he was just there by accident. I don't know why he's come to me and really, I don't want to know.

I move to speak, to back away and find some way out of this but he beats me to it. He just repeats Judila as if it's my name and I just stare back at him as calmly as possible. I guess he remembered me or something but I don't know if that is a good thing or not. He'd always been taught to not eat pack... did he think we were in Judila still? I move to speak, my mouth falling open but again he cuts me off. This time he says I'm his and I'm taken aback - I stare up at him frowning and trying to resist the urge to growl. I don't want him near me but I don't really want to lose a limb, either. Where is Cobryn when I need him? Where is Arsenic or Jaidah to remind him that he isn't to eat pack? I don't even care if he isn't pack anymore - I never really considered him to be - but I do care about what happens to me. I have to think quick, that's all I know.

"Judila," I repeat, my voice slow as I nod my head a little. I try to speak up, to be as loud as I can so that there's no way he can't hear me. I'm not really afraid of him, after all. I'd lived with him since he was born - I had some idea of how he worked. He's above me, though, which I know means he think he's the boss. He's bigger than me, too, so I can't even hope to scare him away (if that's even possible.) I have to play his games like we all used to. Funny how we had to live in fear in our own home. I thought I'd gotten away from him for good but I guess not.

"Yours," I say in the same slow stone, unsure whether or not to keep eye contact. I don't want him to think I'm challenging him because I'm not - I don't want him to think anything like that. I just want him to leave or at least stall long enough for somebody else to find me. Or for me to get away. I nod slowly, keeping my body low though for a moment, I look around hopefully. Maybe there will be an escape path or something nearby; I'm half tempted to push him into the water and watch him float downstream but I don't think I'm big enough.

"Judila... we are pack," I say again, my eyes going back to his as I lift my head a little. I don't want to seem like a threat but I don't want to seem like dinner, either. I still remember what he did to that Trenus wolf - Valkyrie, wasn't it? He'd caused enough hell, or so I thought. I just couldn't believe Fate had left him to survive while good wolves like Edge and Hazard had died. Then again, I don't think he'd ever been part of nature or even a wolf. When they said he was a demon, I don't think they were kidding. If he can remember me, though, maybe he will remember his mother or Arsenic. If he even remembers me - I still can't tell really.

"We don't eat pack," I say, trying to sound as strong like Jaidah as possible as I frown at him a little. I don't know how they did it but Jaidah and Arsenic had kept him in line for so long. Maybe I could do it, too, or maybe I could at least get out of this mess without a bite here or there. I really couldn't afford to be injured, not with us being homeless and Cobryn being so miserable. Who would hunt and care for he and Covet? It had to me. If there was a time in my life where I needed to be strong, it was right now.
